TILT seminar: Handbook non-discrimination by design: translating between the legal, the ethical and technical

Date: Time: 12:00 Location: ONLINE Meeting

Time: 12:00 -13:30

Recently the Handbook Non-discrimination by Design was published by the Dutch Government. This handbook was the product of an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers from Tilburg University, Eindhoven University of Technology, Free University of Brussels-VUB, and the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights. It was composed as part of a study commissioned by the Netherlands Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations and explains, step by step, how organizations that want to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) can prevent using algorithms with a bias. The research team examined technical, legal, and organizational criteria that need to be taken into account.

In this TILT seminar, the project lead Bart van der Sloot (TILT) and research team member Hilde Weerts (Tue) will present the report and reflect on the interdisciplinary process of developing system principles for the development of AI systems based on the legal framework. Heleen Janssen (IViR) will act as discussant. At the time, she initiated the project of non-discrimination-by-design principles at the Ministry of the Interior, which laid down the first basis of the work that we are discussing today. Merel Noorman (TILT), also a research team member, will chair this seminar.
